      Description

      It'd be very nice if at least most pipetask options could be passed before or after the subcommand, instead of requiring users to remember which options go where.

      It's entirely possible this is a fundamental limitation of Python's argparse, but if that's the case I think we should strongly consider some way to mitigate the problem, perhaps even by duplicating all current top-level options for each subcommand so options always go after the subcommand.
